"Emerging Girl"

As the charcoal smooths her cheeks and forehead, and forms the more specific facial features, her countenance slips from the white page into the incandescent light of the room; and with the hint of first focus, her eyes, formed only a moment ago, stare into the fog as it morphs into her world.

Once the edges clear she will rise, fully formed, and walk into the room. I am impatient; I wait with baited breath.

Can she tell us what is on the other side?

  3. Very different from your other work...I had to look back to see who it was again! Wonderful, creative sketch. Sometimes the people I draw start from a smudge that reminds me of a lip or a nose which then makes me want to carve out the rest of them. This is the perfect illustration of that!

  7. Diego, this is very enigmatic. I like the image here, and don't see the big black spot under her neck like in the publication. Great to see you and Verjilio yesterday. PS can't find your FB page. My studio's fan page is Laura Gable Studio if you'd care to peek in.
